NDMC stopped CCTV installation after L-G formed panel: Kejriwal

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

The Municipal Council (NDMC) which was working on installation of CCTV cameras for the last two years has stopped the task following setting up of a new panel by the Lieutenant Governor, claimed today.

has formed a committee to come up with a standard operating procedure for the installation, operation and monitoring of cameras in the national capital.

"was installing CCTV cameras in residential colonies for last 2 yrs. In view of LG's committee, has also stopped further installation of cameras. Extremely unfortunate. Whatever gud work was gng on, all stopped. Dirty politics wid women safety (sic)," Kejriwal, who is also a member of NDMC, tweeted.

After Baijal formed the panel, the had alleged that the only aim of setting up the committee was to interrupt government work and not let the CCTV cameras be installed.

The fight between the and the L-G, over installing CCTV cameras in intensified today as Kejriwal along with his cabinet ministers and MLAs sat on a 'dharna' near the office urging him "not to stall" the project under "pressure from the BJP".

Yesterday, Baijal wrote to Kejriwal, saying it was "unfortunate" that the public and media were being "misled" on the issue "repeatedly and deliberately".

Hours after Baijal's letter, Kejriwal wrote back to the L-G, seeking to know why he was "politicising" the issue of women safety.

Kejriwal is alleging that Baijal had set up the committee "arbitrarily", bypassing the elected government and sought to know why he was "violating" the Constitution.
